Candlelight Processional 2022

November 25 - December 30, 2022

Held every year at EPCOT, the Candlelight Processional is a not-to-be-missed event. A mass choir, joined by a 50-piece live orchestra and a celebrity narrator, tell the story of Christmas in words and music, in a very moving performance. An American Sign Language interpreter will also be on stage to translate the narrated story, allowing hearing-impaired guests to enjoy the event. Performances are held at the America Gardens Theatre.

Showtimes are at 5:15 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 8:30 p.m. nightly. 


In 2022, an exciting line-up of celebrities—including a few new faces and voices—are set to lend their talents, including:

  • 11/25 – 11/26: Simu Liu (NEW)
  • 11/27 – 11/29: Chita Rivera
  • 11/30 – 12/1: Raul Esparza (NEW)

The Candlelight Processional dining package allows you to enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the participating restaurants while guaranteeing you a seat for that evening's show. It's important to note that, at times, this is THE only way to get a seat. Those with Dining Packages are the first to be seated - those waiting in line (a.k.a. those who didn't buy the package) will be given the very few seats that remain. If you're at Walt Disney World during the holidays this is a not-to-be-missed event.
